June Mets Tickets…

Found out yesterday that tickets for Mets games at Citi Field for June go on sale on Sunday at 10am EST. Got an email this morning saying that as a member of the Mets email group I can do a presale on Friday at 10am EST. Might have to look into that, but I ain’t […]


When Bob & I adjusted our trip, I had already got our rental car via Priceline and got a great deal on a Premium car. So I needed to make changes, so I called Priceline to see if I could add a day on and pick it up 1 day earlier, they told me I […]

30 Ballparks in 30 Days update…

Just got a message from Tom via a thread I started on that says that they will be unable to get the full 30 in 30 as of tonight because of what he said was a scheduling change by the Orioles. This means they have 2 games at 2 different parks (Camden & National’s […]

Washington Natinals? Huh? :)

I have seen this on a couple other sports blogs and thought I would pass it along here to those that might have missed it. It’s really hard to believe that a “Pro” team would not catch something like this. Then again, it is quite possible that it was a prank pulled by a couple […]

Interesting article from Thought I would share this link with anyone that didn’t happen to see it on this morning.  Hard to believe that many HR’s have been hit already… but so great to see the Yanks go down the way they have 🙂

Tigers vs Mariners – April 18, 2009

Tonight’s game started out as a great pitchers duel for the first 5+ innings. Both Eric Bedard and Edwin Jackson were throwing great games. Bedard did have a pretty high pitch count though. In the 6th inning Ordonez led off with a single and advanced to 2nd on Lairds single. Brandon Inge singled to right where Ichiro fielded the ball cleanly and fired it to home like a laser, but unlike what we are used to seeing, the run being gunned down so easily, what we saw was the ball sailing and going out of play, thus allowing 2 runs to score. E-9! I don’t think I can recall another game where I have said, “We lost on an Ichiro throwing error!”

Tax Season is finally over…

I am an office manager for Jackson Hewitt Tax Service here in Olympia, WA, and now that tax season is over that means that I can concentrate more on other things like… BASEBALL!

R.I.P Harry Kalas ESPN and MLB Homeplate on XM are reporting that one of the greatest voices, not only in baseball but in sports, was silenced today.  Harry was not only the voice of the Phillies, but NFL Films as well.  He will be greatly missed!
